Time to get back on the rails
Every train journey begins and ends in a station. The impression that railway stations leave on a traveller impacts their view of the whole rail network. Train stations also act as gateways to a new area. They are often the first experience that a traveller gets of a village, town or city. Today, railway stations operate around the clock and a modernisation programme is making railway stations fit for the 21 st century, improving the passenger environment and looking to use cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to enable travellers to begin and complete journeys. Rising fuel prices, the growing problem of road congestion and the need to move towards sustainability make rail more than ever the most appropriate means of transport. It is the way forward for the government and its plan “Decarbonising transport: a better, greener Britain”. High quality, yet energy-efficient and low-maintenance lighting provides a strategic asset for the development of a sustainable and beneficial railway infrastructure.

About Schréder and Urbis Schréder Who is Schréder ?
For more than 115 years, Schréder, an independent, family-owned company, has dedicated itself to exploring everything there is about the potential of light, constantly pushing the boundaries of technological innovations.
Expertise, passion, innovation, and sustainability drive 2,600 employees to use the power of light for the safety and well-being of all, from public spaces to higher-risk environments, such as railway stations, commuter routes and car parks where the consequences of a dark or dimly lit area can lead to injuries.
Urbis Schréder: leading where others follow Based in Basingstoke, Urbis Schréder has been delivering high quality lighting since 1977. It is now one of the UK’s largest suppliers of street lighting and exterior decorative lighting equipment.
High technical quality and aesthetic design is at the heart of the company’s philosophy and this, coupled with exceptional levels of customer focus, has led Urbis Schréder to develop the most cost effective, energy efficient, lighting innovations for the rail market in the UK.
The ability to make a real difference in the spaces we light, to stretch the boundaries of what is possible, to delight our customers is what makes us unique. It is what makes us Experts in Lightability™.
Why LED lighting? The quality of light is better. LEDs provide visual accuracy in environments where it is paramount, both in the ability to see clearly and move in complete safety and comfort for both employees and customers. Our commitment to technical quality, has led us to develop the most cost-effective and energy-efficient range of luminaires available on the market today for lighting commuter spaces, even in the most remote and challenging environments. They can be easily integrated into management systems for flexible scheduling to optimise lighting networks and generate even more savings.
LED lighting solutions can significantly reduce energy costs and carbon emissions by up to 80%. LEDs have a long life span so the lighting solution lasts decades; meaning that the whole life cost of lighting is dramatically reduced.
Why Urbis Schréder ? Urbis Schréder’s wide range of lighting solutions for the rail industry, combined with the company’s expertise and outstanding heritage in delivering break through projects, creates the best possible experience for passengers and staff in the station environment.
New technology offers the rail industry the ability to improve station lighting and significantly reduce cost. By combining traditional street lighting, LED handrails, continuous tiled lighting and ground level inclination lighting; it is possible to create a bright and effective environment. The improved visibility reduces the risk of crime in a station environment and increases passenger confidence.
Critical to delivering a safe and pleasant passenger experience inside and in the vicinity of a station is appropriate lighting solutions.
Control solutions ET’S ET
Connecting your luminaires is not just about adding in a control system to the products you are having installed, it’s much more than that. It is about control of the area you are lighting, it’s about the space the lights are in and the people who are using that space, it’s about delivering solutions beyond lighting for electric mobility, security, information and entertainment. Is the light right for type of areas? Are you lighting an area to reduce the crime rate? What type of lighting will attract people to use that space? And do you need to dim the light during certain hours of the night but have the control to be able to make them bright again should there be an emergency? Are you wanting to look for energy efficient lighting, a more sustainable solution that reduces your costs? So, by taking all of this into consideration, the place, the space, the people, the light, the control, let’s get connected!
Connecting your luminaires is much more than adding a control system to the products. It is about customising an area to unleash its full potential.
